Try this:

If (Request.Cookies("ID") != null)
{
  HttpCookie ck = new HttpCookie("ID",Request.Cookies("ID"));
  //Set expiration time.
  Response.Cookies.Add(ck);
}

Have a look at the following article that best describes about cookie. Also its not good to just expire cookie by DateTime.Today.AddDays(-1). Use DateTime.Today.AddYears(-30) so that it will be expired no matter what time difference is there.

Are you running both asp and asp.net together?

If so, keep in mind that they do not automatically share their cookies.  asp.net cannot automatically use cookies set in asp.  You can add the following line to your Page_Load method:
Response.Cookies.Set( Request.Cookies.Get( "MY_COOKIE" ));
